Declutter Your Thoughts into One Big Idea

big idea
“Thoughts are things, and powerful things at that, when they are mixed with definiteness of purpose, persistence and a BURNING DESIRE for their translation into riches, or other material things.”

Napoleon Hill, Author of Think and Grow Rich.

For twenty years, Hill interviewed the most distinguished businessmen of the time. Some of the men he got to interview, include: John D. Rockefeller, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Willian Wirgley Jr. What he discovered about these men is that it wasn’t their skills, experience, or means that set them apart, but it was how they thought.

We have a hundred thoughts a day. They may brim you with confidence about the future. They may inspire you to make great things happen in life. They might tell you that you can create what no one has created before.

To create something significant, you need to harness boatload of energy into that small and unformed idea in your brain. You need to make sure that you have reasons beyond money to manifest your idea into reality.

First, you need to work hard on your big idea before it starts to inspire any awe in others. You will receive negative response as much as praise, and you should be fine with it.

Some people will be impressed by your idea while some will wish they were making their idea happen and will feel resentful. Others – your friends and family might wish that you do not take any risks in life and stay the same as you are.

So forget people and forget prestige. You’re better off putting your thoughts into one big idea that would someday change the world. Thirty years ago, it was prestigious to be an investment banker or a soap opera star. Today, it’s prestigious to be a billion dollar startup owner or be in a boy band. What’s going to be prestigious in the coming years is impossible to guess. What matters is that you enjoy the journey of developing your idea and do it well. The rest will follow.
